German Finance Minister Olaf Sholz is encouraging organizers to organize events again. If the sector starts now, he hopes to see events again in the 2nd half of 2021 and he gives guarantees.
Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) plans a government guarantee on costs for all events scheduled for the second half of 2021, should they have to be canceled due to the corona pandemic. It would cover all costs "incurred in optimistic expectations that cannot be realized due to corona restrictions," Scholz said in an interview with the Tagesspiegel.
He wants to encourage organizers to get back to work now so that there are concerts and other events again next summer.
